       Gulab Bagh was built by Maharaja Sajjan Singh in 1881 so it is also known as Sajjan Niwas Garden. It is expanded in over 100 acres of land area. Later this garden was known because of the shows here in this garden related to nature. Further, A Museum was made inside this garden (Victoria Museum), which was the first museum of Rajasthan but it was then shifted to City Palace Udaipur.

Attractions :

  • Rose Garden: 

This garden is mainly known because of the variety of Rose's. Mostly white and the red rose is grown here. Though there are some other flowers makes this magnificent. Along with rose garden, there is a variety of other flowers and trees in this garden. As Udaipur is also known for its natural beauty, this place is one of the best places for tourists. It's not allowed to go inside this rose garden, you can see it from far. (like the picture below)


  • Victoria Museum(Saraswati library): 

This is a museum which was built by a former ruler of Udaipur. But now in present, it is shifted to the city palace museum. So now it's a public library known as Saraswati library. This was the first museum of Rajasthan.

There are more than 30,000 books of different fields like history, archaeology, and handwritten manuscripts related to various subjects and writers. As it was made at the time of British rule, so it was named on Queen Victoria. Then its name was changed to Saraswati library. There is a statue of Mahatma Gandhi in front of this library.

  • Toy Train: 

Toy train rail was made in this garden. It's an amusement for kids. 


  • Gulab Bagh Zoo:

 A zoo with many wild animals and birds in this garden which is widespread. There are migrating birds and cranes which may be good for wildlife enthusiasts but you have to pay for the camera. Leopards and lions can be seen along with some other animals.
As it was a Sunday when I visited so it was a bit crowded. It was a peaceful morning to spend time in this garden. Birds were chirping and blowing air makes it much pleasing. It's a nice feeling to keep in touch with this natural fascination. There were many Black Plum (Jamun) trees so some kids were throwing pebbles to get some jamun. As its a widespread garden, some cricket players come here and play in the morning. the sound of those shouting players may captivate urge to play with them.


After all, it was a nice visit. I am impressed with caretaking and maintenance of such large garden as it is not easy to keep up maintenance.


How to reach : 

Distance from Udaipur railway station is about 1 km so it's easy to reach this garden. 

Time Taken : 

It will take around 1-2 hour as it is a widespread garden so it totally depends upon the time you have.
